Black cockatoo

Posted on Updated on

Female yellow tailed black cockatoo feeding on banskia blossoms at Look At Me Now Headland on the edge of Moonee Beach Nature Reserve north coast NSW. The females have the grey eye ring and white/grey beak and this one was absolutely delighted with her breakfast of flowers.

    At what time of day was this photo taken? There is a softness to the light that brings out the features of this cockatoo: The varying shades of black of it’s plumage and the rings on it’s claw pop out. Very nice shot!

      Thanks! It was fairly early in the morning. I love the texture of the feathers, they are like a luxurious coat.

        I suspected as much but wasn’t a hundred percent sure. There is a softness to the light at Dawn or Dusk that no filter of photo-shopping can add. Nature rocks that way.

    I can’t get over my love affair with Australian birds. They are so gorgeous!
